Mmmm, those look delicious!
Alas, we can't really get pumpkin here without paying an arm and a leg. Sometimes we can get it canned for not too bad of a price, like after Thanksgiving.
I've been longing for some lately, as I browse fall recipes and want to eat pumpkin!

Wow those look really good! I made some last year but I got a rash thing from them so I could be allergic so I'm taking it easy this year.
Also do you guys grind your own wheat? We do and we add that to our bar instead of regular wheat and it works really well!
